OnePlus CEO has tactically put an end to rumors surrounding its next flagship launch date ( OnePlus 6 ).  The company’s CEO Pete Lau in an interview with CNET has confirmed that the sequel to the OnePlus 5T could arrive as early as June 2018. Pete confirmation is in line with a purported list of smartphones arriving in 2018 with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chipset on board which surfaced earlier with June as the arrival date.

Though the CEO didn’t reveal exactly when the device will be unveiled, He was simply quoted as saying: “the next OnePlus phone could come late in the second quarter, in line with the OnePlus 5’s arrival last year”. On the preferred chipset of choice for the OnePlus 6, the CEO said his company is left with no other choice than the Snapdragon 845.

Lau further confirmed to Cnet that he wasn’t so sure if the company will be releasing a second phone in 2018, even though it did so in 2017 and 2016 with the launch of OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 3T. Pei said his company will soon release a beta version of the company’s Face Unlock feature, which was introduced in the 5T  to the OnePlus 3 and 3T.

Following its recent partnership with carriers in Europe, the CEO said it is opened to discussion on the possibility of a US partner.

    Hopefully they will offer more than only an SoC upgrade and higher res (still a happy owner of OP3, saw no need to upgrade to OP5/5T).
    I hope that it will get a tad bigger battery, maybe IP67+, and would be nice to have a fingerprint under the screen like Vivo announced.

      See whatever is in the next releases from Oppo/Vivo and then expect that it will be in the OnePlus6. They don’t do anything original, the design, features and cameras will come straight from Oppo/Vivo. So you can expect the In-screen scanner. Bigger battery won’t be necessary due to the efficiency of the SoC. Its doubtful that they will go above 1080P to maintain its good batterylife that is boost by the 845. Doubtful you will see an IP rating because that costs money (none of their devices get rated for this exact reason but they still have some level of protection). Vivo has been teasing its ridiculous camera technology for a couple years now and is yet to put it into a phone. With the expected release of the Vivo XPlay 7 and the amount of technology they plan on putting it, I can expect that we might finally see this camera hardware/software in a phone. And if we do, I can expect that it will make it into the OP6 as well.
